steering stabilizer questions

I am in need of a steering stabilzer for my xj and noticed a crazy price difference in the price of fox stabilizers for the xj and the jk. I wanted to know if that price difference is due to the stabilizer being built solely for stock xj steering. I have a cavfab steering kit so i was curious if i could just get the fox jk stabilizer and use that. Thanks in advance.

Re: steering stabilizer questions

Well do what you want since a steering damper is not needed anyway!

Not true.

A more correct statement would be, that a steering stabilizer should not be used as a band-aid to cover up worn or improperly designed steering components.

My WJ OTK setup is dialed in and performs flawlessly on the road and off, but a stabilizer is a nice addition to soften the jolt transmitted to the steering wheel when traveling off-road on rubble strewn, rutted or washboard tracks for long distances.

The FOX ATS and Teraflex Falcon units are definitely high end and spendy, but the ability to tune them is nice and the pass-thru design eliminates the mild steering pull that is typically associated with a gas charged unit. I scored a smokin deal on a low-mile Fox ATS unit a few weeks ago that had been run on a JK, before the owner move up to 1-tons, 40's and hydro assist.

Not sure on the differences in prices. Sorry if that doesn’t help but I’m running the Cavfab steering also but without a steering stabilizer. Stabilizers are not needed providing everything is dialed in on the front of your Jeep.
